Ok so probably not totally change it, but in this talk Tim and Keith will be taking you through one of the worst kept secrets in WordPress, WP-CLI (, the command line interface for WordPress. They will cover why EVERYONE should be using it and some of the most useful features it brings.

This is an introductory talk aimed at a general audience even if you have never used a command line in your life. This will probably appeal to those who want to find out more about coding with WordPress or who already do.

Keith will take you through some basics of using the unix command line, in a short talk to help you get use to navigating and using simple commands that you are likely to want to use with WP-CLI

Level: Beginner - Intermediate


Ready, now we really are going to change your world...

From automation to extending WP-CLI Tim is going to start to show some of the true power of using WP-CLI and how developers and theme designers can maximise its usage. From moving away long running processes to making developing themes and plugins faster.

Level: Intermediate


You'll be welcomed on arrival by our friendly and knowledgable volunteers where you can grab your name badge and get settled in. We aim to get started at around 7pm so give yourself plenty of time to get a drink as the bar downstairs can get busy.

We usually start the night off with some updates about what's happening in the local and national WordPress community and members are welcome to add their own update. Just speak to one of the organisers before we start if you'd like to say or ask something.

After the first talk we take a break before our second talk. Following that if you want to stick around a few of us usually hang around for another drink and chat.

We will be upstairs in the function room, here is a handy video showing you how to get there...
